We eat here regularly, during the week mostly and occasional Sunday lunches. The food is consistently lovely and beautifully presented. Very friendly staff who will listen to any changes you might want to make to the meals. I always go for the salmon when it is on the menu because its the freshest and best i have ever tasted. Most,... More

We have been eating at the Lime Tree several times a year for more than 10 years. We can honestly say that we have never had a disappointing meal. The menu is small but none the worse for that and is always beautifully cooked. The scallops in a Thai chilli sauce are best we have ever found.The service is always... More

It's fair to sat that The Lime Tree is one of my favourite restaurants whether for a family meal, dinner with friends or a special occasion. The food is always excellent, non of the other restaurants in the neighbourhood can better it. We often go for Sunday lunch. It's a great deal and the roast beef is superb. It's been... More

I had arranged to go out for lunch and had thought of eating at another restaurant but decided to try out The Lime Tree. It's been many years since I had been and I was pleasantly surprised. We had come with a dog and were told it wasn't a problem and as well as making a fuss of the dog... More

I booked the Lime Tree for dinner for two and was disappointed by the evening. I was told when I booked that only 7.00pm was available which was slightly earlier than I wanted but there seemed to be plenty of tables available when we were there even though it was Saturday evening. We were unable to order a cocktail, and... More

My brother with whom I was visiting recommended this restaurant. He said it never fails and it didn't. It was very quiet in the restaurant though as the World Cup final was on so it was a fairly quick meal. Nevertheless the restaurant was clean, modern, staff were friendly and efficient. The food was very good. We had an enjoyable... More

Have regularly visited the lime tree with my family over the years and food has always been great. Decided to book a table for my mum's birthday - 6 of us ate and the bill came to £230 which I completely expected and have never had a problem paying this as the food has always been enjoyable. Can't fault the... More

We rarely respond to trip advisor posts but on this occasion felt the need to do so as your comments both inaccurate and unreasonable. It was very unfortunate your daughters clothing came into contact with pollen from flowers which had opened from bud in the warm weather. This was our mistake and we take responsibility for this. Both the managers... More

We have been visiting the Lime Tree for over 15 years, family gatherings, work meetings, lunch, dinners and always choose it as a destination restaurant. However, portions have changed, we chose from the A La Carte and the crab starter was minute, the main course portions were much smaller and we felt disappointed.
